The Weedy Boys

I have this tiny little spot in our backyard that was our vegetable garden last year. It was so much fun to care for it, watch everything grow in its own time and then enjoy the fruits of our labor.

So much so that we decided to put in a garden again this year. Too bad it’s now overgrown with weeds.

Then I had a lightbulb moment.

Fifteen minutes later, all the weeds looked like this:

I helped too in case you were wondering:)

All I did was say that I needed some help pulling weeds, but my helpers had to be strong. Needless to say, each boy immediately proceeded to have me feel their biceps! No nagging or bribery required.

Ahh…the benefits of free labor. (Well, not entirely free, I’m going to reward them with an ice cream cone for helping so cheerfully on a super hot day!)

For those of you in the area, Centre Street Market has all their veggies and herbs for $1 each. They don’t have quite the different number of varieties that some of the big box stores do, but all of their plants were super healthy and cheap. That’s also where I bought my flowers for our patio perk up.
